    his name was "Ezio" then ;)

    are you guys just assuming that Ezio is the main character?
    you're forgetting that the series set the precedent for jumping between protagonists in the very beginning.

    Altair and Ezio are ancestors of Desmond.
    as long as one of his ancestors was an assassin whose memories can be accessed by the Animus, then the player character could be any person from any time period any place in the world on any side of the conflict.

    also, it has already been confirmed that Ezio is not the main character anymore.

    so you can put this argument to rest right now.
    it doesn't matter how we wind up in the US (as it relates to the previous games) because this is a completely new ancestor.

    recently there's been a huge dump of new information:

    I don't see why the costume is bothering folks.
    The screenshots i've seen in this very thread go to show him merging surprisingly well with his surroundings. It doesn't look that odd and besides, it's an avatar in an inaccurate 'memory-machine' it doesn't have to represent what ever 'Conner/Tutankhamen' was really wearing at all times.

    I reckon if he took the hood off he'd not stand out in a crowd.

    In the game you can unlock the Altair outfit which is really quite noticeable.
    I don't think anyone thought that as AC2 series takes place in the 1400s. It would be kind of hard for Ezio to stay alive that long when in Revelations he's already old.

    oh right.
    I see what you were saying.

    lol you don't have to tell me.

    but Sleepy said that the guy's heritage (Desmond's) is European; so why would he (his ancestors) help the US in the Revolution? which got everyone saying things like "how does he end up fighting against the British?" where "he" is implied to have some connection to Ezio or Altair. since apparently they would be on the side of the Brits?

    I'm only pointing out that any character from AC 3 would obviously be far removed from those in 1/2 and Brotherhood/Revelations. far enough that there doesn't have to be a single link between him and the viewpoints/motivations of those who came before.

    Well, they all have one thing in common: they are all ancestors of Desmond.

    I would hope not, seeing as Ezio died over 200 years before the Revolutionary War. :eek:

    Clearly Ezio escaped hell, and is back with avengeance.

    Which does actually mean they'd have to have a US ancestor at some point..

    I don't think Jacks was refuting that in his statement.

    Jacks is saying that the generations are so far apart that the motivations/viewpoints of Altair/Ezio/Desmond are not necessarily the motivations of Connor.
    So Connor can scalp as many brits as he damn well pleases!

    I won't deny that. The other common theme with Altair and Ezio is the Apple. I wonder if there will be a new thing though since they have the Apple now.

    I've not finished Revelations yet by half but I was getting the hint that there was a new item already?
    They all likely fit together to make a gear-stick for a flying pyramid I guess.

    I'm honestly only an hour into Revelations if that so I'm not sure. I need to finish it, just one of the billion games I want to finish....

    Wouldn't it just make more sense that the Templar are supporting the British and the assassins/masons are supporting the revolution? Is that enough reason to see why you fight against the British?

    it doesn't appear to have anything to do with that.

    according to the info that's been leaked so far, the main character is raised as a Native American Indian who simply finds himself embroiled in the age-old struggle between the Creed and the Templars. naturally he fights on the side of the Assassins, but I'm willing to bet that the reason he falls into this conflict has nothing to do with the conflict itself to begin with.

    Connor (the new character) is apparently fathered by an Englishman but to a Native Indian woman. this would provide him with a basic motivation to get caught up in the American Revolution one way or another. and so at some point this must lead to him discovering the connection between the Templars and control of the New World.

    if the developers are creative enough, this could be one of the more compelling installments in the AC series.

    It'd be way more interesting if Templars and Assassins are both represented in both sides of the conflict.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It wouldn't surprise me if that was the case to begin with. The Assassins and Templars don't really care about who fights who, they just care about using the groups for their own personal gain.

    ok that's pretty funny :lol:

    first time I've heard of it.
    but then, I don't participate in "social media" that much.
